Post-Grant Review Process -- Post grant review is a new trial proceeding that will be conducted by the Patent Trial and Appeal Board to review the patentability of claims in an existing U.S. Patent. The trials allow for limited discovery, which has not been available in ex parte or inter partes reexamination, the existing procedures for challenging patents in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Post-grant review may be sought in a broader range of circumstances than inter partes review.

Process cont...The process begins with filing of a petition, which may be filed by any person who is not the owner of the patent in question. For post-grant review, the petition must be filed no later than 9 months after the grant date of the patent, or in the case of a reissue patent, no later than 9 months after the issuance was granted. The petition must list the challenged claims. The final determination will normally be issued no later than one year after the proceeding is instituted.
